Indonesia Police Find Islamic State Propaganda Targeting Children

Indonesia Police Find Islamic State Propaganda Targeting Children”

An Indonesian police officer was killed in a knife attack by suspected militants in the city of Medan, a police spokesman said on Sunday.

National police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said the perpetrators shouted "Allahu Akbar (God is Great)" during the attack on the North Sumatra police headquarters in the provincial capital Medan, which began at 3 a.m. when Muslims across the country were about to go to mosque to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Ramadan month of fasting.

Rina said that one of the assailants, identified as Sawaluddin Pakpahan, died after being shot by mobile brigade (Brimob) officers, while his accomplice, named Hardi, was arrested alive.

But stabbings carried out by small groups or "lone wolf" terrorists have posed a major challenge not just for the Indonesian police, but also police forces and counter-terrorism agencies around the world.

Indonesia has witnessed several attacks linked to Daesh over the past years.

Inspector-General Setyo said the duo had been instructed to carry out the attack by Bahrun Naim, an Indonesian who is now among the ranks of ISIS and said to be behind a recent string of attacks in Indonesia, and a foiled plot targeting Singapore a year ago.

The police raided the house of the injured man and found an IS flag, books and CDs linked to the terror group.

The police were also investigating whether the attackers were linked to three suspected militants who were arrested on June 6 in the area by anti-terrorism police. The Islamic State (Isis) will seek footholds elsewhere as it loses ground in the Middle East.

In May suicide bombers killed three police officers at a bus station in Jakarta in the deadliest attack in Indonesia since January 2016, when a suicide blast and gun assault claimed by ISIL left four assailants and four civilians dead in Jakarta.

A sustained crackdown weakened the country's most unsafe networks but the emergence of IS has proved a potent new rallying cry for radicals.

Last week, National police chief Tito Karnavian said that about 40 suspected militants had been detained in recent weeks.
